Notes.

The medicinal uses of this plant in the Caribbean region, as well as its chemistry, biological activity, toxicity and dosages, are discussed by Germosén-Robineau (1997). Details of the active chemical compounds, effects, herbal usage, and pharmacological literature of this plant are given in Fleming (2000).

In the classification of this species espoused by Mabberley (1997), the sour orange or Seville orange is in Citrus aurantium  Sour Orange Group; the sweet orange is in Citrus aurantium  Sweet Orange Group; and the grapefruit is in Citrus aurantium  Grapefruit Group, whereas in the current treatment we have retained a traditional arrangement in which the sour orange or Seville orange is recognized as Citrus aurantium  ; the sweet orange as Citrus sinensis  ; and the grapefruit as Citrus paradisi  .
